Here is a multidimensional playland of ideas from the world's most eccentric Nobel-Prize winning scientist. Kary Mullis is legendary for his invention of PCR, which redefined the world of DNA, genetics, and forensic science. He is also a surfer, a veteran of Berkeley in the sixties, and perhaps the only Nobel laureate to describe a possible encounter with aliens. A scientist of boundless curiosity, he refuses to accept any proposition based on secondhand or hearsay evidence, and always looks for the "money trail" when scientists make announcements. Mullis writes with passion and humor about a wide range of topics: from global warming to the O. J. Simpson trial, from poisonous spiders to HIV, from scientific method to astrology. Dancing Naked in the Mind Field challenges us to question the authority of scientific dogma even as it reveals the workings of an uncannily original scientific mind.

Mullis writes with passion and humour about a wide range of subjects: from science to parapsychology, cloning to HIV and AIDS, global warming to astrology and religion, from the O.J.Simpson trial to a method for turning on a light bulb with one's mind - challenging the authority of scientific dogma.

The present volume introduces the reader to a wide range of information about the men and women who won Nobel Prizes. Excerpts from their life histories, from their achievements in the sciences and arts, are interspersed with an array of anecdotes and chance occurrences which make for highly entertaining reading. Between 1901 and 2002, more than seven hundred people were awarded Nobel Prizes. Covering a time span of 102 years, the book contains more than two hundred well-researched sketches - and the notion that if history is the essence of many biographies, the biographies of the Nobel laureates alone can throw a prominent light on the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first.

This novel will keep echoing through the ages, as the gravitational waves of the biggest events in the universe. It will stay with you forever. Julian got inspired to write about his life experiences after reading Kary Mullis’ book, Dancing Naked in the Mind Field. Everyone has something to teach the world, you don’t necessarily have to be a Nobel Prize winner. And even if you are, you weren’t born one. All major achievers had to go through life, with all its comedy and drama. Dive into the underground world of your existence, and come out on the other side as a new person. You need to know what is happening with your life, before it’s too late. From working for the Government and getting involved in relationships with toxic women, to being a lab technician in the processing of human blood plasma and skilful law-firm crusher in London, there are amazing things to discover within these covers. Ultimately, you will learn the truth about the global scam of 2020. The author has spent over a year studying the science behind coronaviruses, mRNA vaccines, the PCR, immunity, disinformation, psychology, secret strategies and projects of the future, and statistics. Enjoy a shapeshifting book with powerful motifs. For an extrasensory experience, don’t forget to listen to the recommended music for each chapter.
